How To Fest: As Told By A Lame-O

by Zack Zarrillo - Oct 30, 2013

image

by Eric Osman of Lame-O Records

Let’s face it. The Fest is intimidating. I’ll be the first one to tell you that there are FAR too many awesome bands for you to catch everyone you want to catch. Doesn’t matter how well you plan out your schedule on the rad Fest 12 iPhone app, or how many times you convince yourself that you’ll go see that band instead of drinking that Pabst. You won’t. You need a small list of “must-sees” that you make damn sure you get yourself to instead of slugging a third PBR. Seriously dude — it’s only noon. This is my list, and I highly suggest you get to these sets. 

We’re also super stoked to be having two Lame-O Records bands on The Fest this year: Modern Baseball (Saturday - 7:10 @ The Wooly) and Ma Jolie (Saturday – 1:30pm @ The Lunchbox, 8:00 @ Rockey’s). Definitely work those in your schedule and drink a beer with us. It is Fest, after all.

The Menzingers
The list always starts with The Menzingers. No matter how many times I see this band, if they’re playing a festival, it simply does not matter who else is playing or what else is going on. They’re The Menzingers, and they always come first. Some people might think or ask, “How can you reason driving across the country for a festival and seeing a band who lives in the same city as you?” They’re The Menzingers. They have three incredible LPs, each one better than the last. I’ve also heard that the band will be selling their new split 7” with The Bouncing Souls for the first time this weekend. Are the Menzingers my favorite band playing Fest? Yup. Are The Menzingers my favorite band playing punk music right now? If not, they’re damn close. You can’t miss The Menzingers at Fest. It’s simply not an option.

The Smith Street Band
If you don’t know The Smith Street Band by now, you still have time to put your headphones on, ignore the outside world and any of your obligations, and sesh their latest effort: Don’t Fuck With Our Dreams. You have some time, they don’t play until Sunday at 8 at The Florida Theater. These Australian punks were onto something with the release of their sophomore LP, Sunshine and Technology, but fucking nailed it with the new EP, catching the attention of Asian Man Records for the first USA release of their back catalog. It’s just well done punk focusing on being in your twenties and kangaroos. Okay, not really kangaroos, but I’m sure they get asked about kangaroos all the time.  The band is currently on tour with Frank Turner, and you can expect they’re on their A-game, as it seems like they’ve been on tour forever, tweeting last week, “Canada is the 10th country we have played on this tour! Fuck yeah!”  Here’s a jam from their last LP. Don’t miss them.

Kite Party
Whenever I get a chance to talk about music to a large group of people, be it in person or on a website like PropertyOfZack (thanks Zack!), the first band I try to shove down one’s throat is Kite Party. Thankfully, they’re playing Fest again, because it would’ve been kinda awkward to fit them in this otherwise. This band, dare I say it, put out a perfect first record. Each song is equally astounding, and it hasn’t gotten stale in the three years I’ve had it on repeat. They’ve embarked on short tours in the past with Glocca Morra, as well as Three Man Cannon and Tigers Jaw, but they certainly stand out as a different band in the current “scene” or whatever. Maybe that’s why the world hasn’t stopped turning and realized that Kite Party is one of the best bands in the game right now. The band also happens to be one of the most exciting live bands as well, partially due to the skill and creativity of drummer Pat Conaboy. Their Fest performance was one of my favorites last year, and I wouldn’t dream of missing them. 5:30 on Thursday at Boca Fiesta. See you there.
